Tuchel: 'OK to Kurzawa-De Sciglio swap'

Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel confirms Layvin Kurzawa is “in advanced negotiations” for a Juventus transfer, with Mattia De Sciglio going the other way.

The reports of this swap emerged in L’Equipe on Friday afternoon and immediately took off, with multiple sources stating the deal was practically done.

This afternoon, PSG coach Tuchel announced in his press conference that Kurzawa and Edinson Cavani will not be in their squad to face Lille tomorrow.

“I have already given the all-clear to this exchange,” said Tuchel, “but nothing has yet been decided between the two clubs. The situation is still open, so that is why Kurzawa won’t be in the squad against Lille.”

There are reports from France that Kurzawa has already emptied his locker at the Paris Saint-Germain training ground.

It remains to be seen what system this swap will take, because there are suggestions Juventus want a cash sum in order to hand over De Sciglio.
